China Gas Holdings will set up a joint venture with global energy trader Vitol Group to supply liquefied natural gas (LNG) to China.

The joint venture (JV), which will be equally owned by both companies, will be established in Singapore and start LNG shipment to China in 2023.

“The JV Company shall actively seek competitive quality international LNG resources to supply the Chinese market, including but not limited to, long-term, short-term and annual LNG purchase and sale contracts linked to relevant recognised indices,” China gas said in an exchange filing.

Eyeing 5 million tonnes LNG annually

The joint venture is expected to ship 800,000 tonnes of LNG to China in 2023, rising to 1 million tonnes from 2024 onwards, the company said. Starting from the fifth year of the establishment of the venture, China Gas expected to receive a supply of 5 million tonnes annually.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
